This review is from: Cyclone: My Story (Kindle Edition)
As a keen Irish boxing fan, it will be no surprise that Barry was a hero to me so my review should be viewed with this taken into consideration.
However, I have always felt that Barry's career was unfulfilled. This was for a number of reasons and this book delves into the reasons for why this happened. The one overriding theme is honesty and of taking responsibility for his actions, regardless if the outcome was positive or negative.
The book also goes into fantastic detail of some of his key fights, the build-up, the fight itself and the aftermath. You do really feel as if you are there and his technical explanation of the tactics used is a much valued added bonus.
He does not shirk taking about the fall out with Eastwood, his defeats, the death and the massive impact it had on him of Young Ali and of course, because of the time and the places, how the troubles in Northern Ireland impacted on him.
Would recommend this for boxing fans of any age.
